Sometimes we get such clear insight about our healing journey that it resonates deeply.
I got such a knowing during my Breath session yesterday. I set an intention to release any lingering fears and blocks towards more abundance and love. What came during the session was nothing short of amazing.
I came to understand on such a deep level, that I was afraid. The little boy within me needed comfort and support. He was yearning for my unconditional love and protection and he needed to be reassured that everything was going to be okay.
Fear is the underlying emotion behind any stress or feelings of lack that we carry. Many of us hold fears that we’re going to be bankrupt, sick, old, alone, in pain, heartbroken, injured, shamed, or disliked. Even if we’re not conscious of it, just under the surface, this energy can sit.
And behind all of the frightened thoughts is one that is even more significant. The fear of death, of no longer being valid, physical, and alive. A fear that we may die without leaving a legacy or before we have truly made a difference.
When we get scared, it’s our lonely place of lack calling out for help. Often, when it shows up, this is a time we may act out and choose addictive behaviors to numb the pain. Bringing in something from the outside, even when we know it’s a temporary fix, can help alleviate the deep sorrow and put it off for just a little while longer.
There comes a point in all of our journeys when we either allow fear to rule and continue on the same, destructive path, or we choose differently There is nothing wrong with remaining where you are, if where you are feels good. But if you are tired of telling the same old stories over and over again, stories of lack, weakness, and pain, then perhaps it’s time to do some
Where are you afraid? What parts of you need love, forgiveness, and support? Where can you hold compassionate space for yourself rather than looking for it from the outside? How can you move from thinking about what you need to feeling it deeply? When we can choose love over fear by doing the necessary work to unearth where we’re afraid and then get down to the vital job of becoming our own best support system, we really can heal all wounds. We can release once and for all, the heaviness, struggle, and resistance that we hold so dearly, and we can make room for more ease.
Sometimes doing the emotional and spiritual work is the scariest part of all but I certainly can’t think of a more important mission than to face those fears so that you can realize what’s underneath, so that you can feel the shift from darkness to light, from blockage to flow.
You wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t ready. Let me know if I can help.
